24 hour help-line Counselling and support Training

SASS is a free and confidential support service for southern Tasmanian people of all ages who have been affected by any form of sexual violence. We also provide Redress Scheme Support Services across Tasmania.

Our vision is to achieve a community free of sexual trauma.

We provide information and support to professionals, and offer a range of training workshops and education sessions throughout Tasmania.
